Ah, writer’s block. For the next few weeks, I’m going to blog on it every Tuesday (because I’m wrestling with it right now).
Cause #2 for WB: You seriously can’t figure out what happens next.
Solution: This is why you play the “And Then” game: there’s a girl AND THEN her mom tells her to deliver a box of food to her grandma AND THEN she puts on her cape AND THEN she goes…you keep “and thenning” until there are no more “and then” left.
It’s fast and easy, and even though it won’t give you everything you need for your story, it’ll give you the high points, which is really all you need–stepping stones from one scene to the next.
